What is the meaning of life? What is our purpose? Why are we here? Daunting questions whose answers have been sought since mankind’s birth. Although we mortals will continue to debate the nature of our existence for as long as we exist, I know this: we are not here to scream at each other for not wearing three layers of masks or to force each other to submit to experimental medical injections just because some very powerful people say we must.
We are not here to lock people up in jail because they have the temerity to worship God together. We are not here to board up small businesses because family owners desperate to remain financially afloat choose to operate in defiance of politicians exercising unjust, arbitrary, and completely capricious powers that they do not legally possess. We are not here to shun those who refuse forced injections of foreign substances, to lock our doors when they are near, to disinvite them from family gatherings, or to vilify them as “unclean” and “unworthy” of life. We are not here to silence those who have different opinions by censoring their words and prejudiciously labeling their arguments as “misinformation.” This is not the purpose of our existence.
